Hey @KlaviyoEng, welcome to the platform! I'll have someone take a look at that.

And, btw, we're also working on a Teams plan that will have some extra interviewing features that you might like.

What should we code?
posted to Ask by katyadee

I'd love to see more multiplayer game. We played @kaldisberzins game a lot but I'd like to see more games we can play together as a community. If they have social elements like chatting and not just shooting at each other then all the better!

@pfunk we're on this. Multiplayer is still in beta and we're iterating on it. But let me tell you we plan to make it Multiplayer at heart!!

Multiplayer is coming NEVER due to the fact that it would be almost impossible to get to work perfectly.

@HENRYMARTIN4 can you share what technical limitations exist to make this work? Maybe we, the Repl.it team, can help with this.

What to expect from Repl.it in 2020
posted to Ask by PaoloAmoroso

Early this year we're focused on performance, reliability, and design polish. You might've noticed some improvements on that front.

The most exciting thing to look forward to with regards to performance is our new snapshot-based filesystem. We're rolling it out as we speak. If you're an explorer you'll already get. Not only git, and other file operations will be more reliable, but we'll also be caching dependencies so they don't have to install every-time the repl wakes up.

We're then going to spend some more time on API. More specifically, an API for IDE plugins, an API for creating/managing repls, and an (official) API for repl talk.

After that, comes the real interesting stuff around the platform. We'll polish up and ship Auth, as well as repl.store, plus other things that we can't really talk about right now. Then, we're going to spend some time working and documenting on the "Repl.it workflow." In other words "what's the recommended way to build and deploy software on our platform," along with a way for doing continuous integration/deployment.

Finally, expect some love to mobile/tablet. Whether it's a native app or something else is TBD.

How Did YOU Find Repl.it
posted to Ask by PYer

Back in school I was getting interested in learning more programming languages. But I was discouraged because I didn't have a laptop and was always on the move (between home, school, and job) and every time I had an hour to code a little I have to spend most of it installing or troubleshooting compilers, IDEs, libraries, etc.

So I discovered the idea behind Repl.it -- an instant & portable programming environment for any language I want to learn. I ended up being the one to code it into existence but I might as well have found it if it existed before that.

Over half of my files just disappeared.

@TamingTheTech terribly sorry -- this is incredibly important for us and we'll make sure we fix it.

Meanwhile, I can possibly restore your files. Do you remember what are the name of the files?

I never thought I'd cry playing a game. But this is different. After being on top of the world with my run button being green I was absolutely shattered. I was heartbroken and in disbelief. I lost all meaning. I was staring into the abyss.

I'm not sure if I'll ever recover but I have a feeling that what Empty takes Empty gives back. I'm holding hope that one day I'll see the deep wisdom and optimism hidden behind the darkness and nihilism on the surface.

Pray for me comrades. Pray for me.
